But Charolotte clearly is ahead of the other girls as of now.. 3 episodes solely dedicated to her and Ichika's "friendship" is actually surprising for me..

I like Laura and think she is going to be a good addition, but I'm not sure anyone is on the same power level as Charlotte is in this series or in any other series this year so far...I could be wrong though...Vive la France!!!

I guess I was being too ambiguous there that no one noticed?

I guess, like the majority of the watchers so far, even the authors like Charlotte better than the other girls in the harem...

Houki and Laura are a perfect team. One is chilling too hard, the other is too zealous. The story will probably resolving in both of them resolving each others problems.

Ichika earned a few redeeming points this episode, but he's still not out of the gay zone, yet.

Overall series has improved, compared to previous episodes.

Go Charlotte, do your best to get Ichika out from his gay zone .

I wonder if the battle will be IchikaXLaura and CharlotteXHouki, but i found it not fair because Houki is the only one who doesn't have personal IS.

Something bugging me is why Chifuyu doesn't have a boyfriend? I mean she is not bad . . .

Hm, don't think that Ichika's gonna get out of his gay zone anytime soon...
hell, this episode even reinforced that with his remark of liking 'male' Charles.

This probably sums her up: Hot as hell to look at - impossible to live with. You better be prior or active military or else your life will be a hard one.

Seriously, she probably doesn't need a man in her life right now - what can they do for her? No man can outfight her, no man can command the respect and adoration of legions of squealing fangirls/cadets, and no man can protect her little brother from the rest of the world like she can.

If Major Mokoto Kusanagi was a human, she'd be Chifuyu.

Yeah i got your point, and in addition it might have something to do with her family trauma. She only need her brother to be safe now.

Chifuyu is a bitch, plain and simple. The man has gotta A. Be her personal whooping boy or B. Strong enough to put her in her place (in the kitchen)

1. Character A attacks Character B with a supposedly powerful attack, shrouding Character B in fire or smoke or whatever.
2. While the smoke or fire is clearing, Character A declares their victory prematurely and naively.
3. Surprise, Character B is unscathed!

I'm surprised action anime are still using this cliche so much. It's gotten to the point that if we simply omit the premature victory declaration in step 2, the suspense is a lot more interesting. It's not nearly the worst cliche I've seen in action anime, but it is one of the most egregious.

The dialogue to the fight in this episode was a hilariously lame attempt at wit. I hate Laura so much. She was deliberately trying to attack Rin and Cecilia while they were unarmored! Apparently she doesn't care about being expelled if she could barely scratch Ichika, huh? Idiot. Not as much of an idiot as Ichika, but still moronic.

And what's with Rin and Cecilia after they were saved? "It would have been fine even if you hadn't come save us." "If we continued like that, we would have won." Did they even notice their own fight? Their darn suits were shut down, they couldn't do anything but be saved! Serves them right to be disqualified from the tournament

Most things about Ichika I hate also, he seems to be the prime example of "how not to write a harem protagonist". But I also realized that I can't stand his seiyuu. Maybe Uchiyama Kouki has some decent voice talent, but his voice combined with Ichika's character is absolutely horrible.

The undressing scene was hard to follow. How did Ichika end up with the panties in his hand? It's likely that the more racy shots and animation was cut out for the TV release and will be shown in the BD. Speaking of that scene, I'm getting more irritated with Ichika. Charlotte specifically said she didn't mind Ichika seeing her changing but Ichika has to be such a dork and play the saint.

Nothing is "too bad" once you've mastered the power of self-suggestion while watching anime. Who is this Ichika you're talking about, anyways?

Well, it was basically an even fight, so I'm not surprised they thought they could have won. I guess we'll never know, since Charlotte came and ended the fight. Talk about your cool finishing moves! I'm glad they're actually doing creative things with the CG in this show. With that kind of beatdown, I think Laura got her payback for starting such a dumb fight.

Anyways, she was so cute when she was embarassed about losing that I couldn't possibly be mad at her.

You keep mentioning this Ichika person. Is that some reference to some other show you guys have seen but I haven't?

Are they making an H-OVA for the BD then? That's the only way I can think of to make it racier that Charlotte's full frontal nudity, especially in that part where Houki ended up with Charlotte's panties in her hand.

They're proud and hardcore tsunderes. They didn't want to look weak in front of their beloved. Charlotte figured it out right away, Ichika of course, was completely oblivious to it.

And then the girls run away screaming. Talk about being discrete. But I guess that doesn't matter since even the obvious flies past Ichika.
For starters, there are no fat girls in this school. Secondly, Ichika is going to win the tournament. Cecilia, Lin, and Houki will be relieved and delighted since it means no girls will got out with him. It's precisely at this point that Charlotte will choose to disclose her gender and claim the date for herself right under their noses. Trojan horse strategy. Go, France!

Great episode but I'm really questioning Ichkia's obsession over changing together with others... It just seems odd... It is heaping evidence towards Ichika being gay and would it would explain his incredibly dense mind perfectly. Would also make a pretty interesting surprise and seeing the reactions from every single girl in the harem.

But anyway, like others have mentioned i'm amazed Laura was able to get off with pretty much almost strangling Rin and Cecilla to death and then trying to fire at them when they didnt even had their IS's on anymore. Clearly that would of resulted in death so I really wonder what Laura had in mind to kill them...

I'm also amazed the shield still works when they were being strangled and kinda destroys my idea that the shield was a sort of flat invisible thing where instead it seems to be something that bends around the actual body and frame.

Well he is the only male in an all female school. I guess he just wants to be able to feel ok changing clothes without having to look over his shoulders for females who want to take a peek at him.
